NEWS: CITIZENS ARREST, MIND ERASER THIS FIRDAY! & NICK POOT MEMORIAL SHOWS

It has been a while, I have been supper busy with work and traveling the past few weeks. The only show I was able to make it out to lately was the Sheer Terror, Breakdown, Templars & Rival Mob gig a few Sundays back. Oh yeah i also saw a pretty violent Templars show while i was down in Austin TX visting family and friends.

First off, This fir day is the CITIZENS ARREST reunion show w/ ASSHOLE PARADE & MIND ERASER. Pretty damn stoked about this. I heard they played a show in Long Island while i was down in Texas. News to me. Should be a Banger for shore. Please note MIND ERASER is playing first so if you want to see them get to the show on time. They haven't played the area in a while and won't be playing much in the next few months so make it down on time. ASSHOLE PARADE
are flying in from Florida and Denver, CXA was pretty influential on them so they are very honored and amped on playing these shows.

THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT!!!, I HAVE NO GUEST LIST SPOTS. The only thing i can say if you HAVE tickets and ARE NOT coming to the show please E-mail me: hardcoregigvolume@gmail.com. I'm sure i can get someone to pay you for them. (Even if they are Will Call i can change the names on the list) With that being said if you need tickets just drop me an e-mail, I will get you in touch with some people who need to sell their tickets

Nick Poot R.I.P.

As alot of you already know by now mine and your dear friend Nick Poot passed away on November 24th. I was lucky enough to make it up to New Hampshire to see him in his last days. I have dealt with a lot of loss in my life, many aunts and uncles, grand parents even my estranged father passed away last year. None of that could of prepared me for the loss of a great friend such as Nick. Even as i sit her typing this it is hard to hold back the tears. I have never lost a buddy before and I hope I never have to again. Nick's life was to short, it wasn't his fault, but he lived his life the way he wanted to. He worked as a cook in a restaurant because he wanted to. He wore a studded jacket, listened to Discharge, played in Bands because he was punk. He did what he wanted in the time he was given. I think we can all take comfort in that and the fact he spent his last days with his amazingly Loving family (Tim, Barbra, Jeff Poot & Kristy) and his friends from all spans of his life from High School, to St Louis, to Boston, to Brooklyn. Live your life the way Nick lived his, do what makes you happy. Life can be too short. I'll miss you always friend. Rest Peacefully.

I didn't mean to bum anyone out i just feel like i need to write something about my dear friend, becasue i will never forget him.

Amelia put together a few Memorial / Benfit shows for Nick Poot coming up in January. I think we can all agree that Nick would of wanted us all to celebrate his life and pay our last respects in this fashion. Thank you Amelia for doing all the Leg work on this.
